Talking to reporters here on Thursday, he said Rahul Gandhi had observed this during his visit to Nagarhole National Forest. “I will collect information from the senior Forest Officers within half an hour to examine whether it is possible to treat the injured baby elephant. I will respond to Rahul’s letter and do whatever possible on humanitarian grounds”.
Asked whether the participation of AICC President Sonia Gandhi’s in the ongoing Bharat Jodo yatra will have any impact on BJP, the CM said leaders of all political parties are working and Sonia Gandhi left after walking for half a km. These things will not have any impact on the ruling party. The participation of AICC General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi in the yatra has no connection with them.
Bommai said as decided prior to Bharath Jodo yatra, the ruling BJP will undertake six rallies. Due to the State Legislature Session and Dasara festival, a joint tour of the entire state along with former CM, B.S.Yediyurappa will be done soon.
